Conversations with the Minx

 

As we are driving past Seattle’s baseball and football stadiums

 IMG_1380

Minx: That’s Safeco Field!

Me: Who plays there?

Minx: The baseball.

Me:  And who plays at Qwest Field?

Minx: The Sounders! (We recently went to a game.) We had to sing ‘go home Chelsea’! (Chorus of ‘go home Chelsea’ from the back seat). But there were no girls (the Minx is a keen soccer player).

Me: Who else plays at Qwest Field? (Silence) The Seahawks play at Qwest Field. We haven’t been to see them but they play American football.

Minx: Do they have girls?

Me: No, girls don’t usually play American football.

Minx: Is there nowhere in Seattle that I can go to watch GIRLS?

How do I explain that one?

    I mentioned the Storm to her and she was most enthusiastic. Volleyball and roller derby both never occurred to me – they are such American sports. And I find it difficult not to call it roller DAHby.
    Tickets will be procured…
